Leverage the expanding reach of technology and digital communications to build electoral power for progressives and moderates throughout the United States. To do that, we are building a lasting and permanent tech and digital arm for Democrats.
While we focus on state legislative races, it is not exclusive: we are happy to look at statewides, congressionals, state parties, and party committees as well. The reason state legislative work makes up the bulk of our work is multifold:
In 2017, our founders realized that many in the tech industry have indispensable skills that non-presidential and down-ticket campaigns find hard to access, even at the volunteer level - like cutting edge performance and social marketing, data analysts and science, engineers and many more.
At the same time, many members of the tech community were craving a way to get involved beyond their pocket books and hadn’t found an ongoing means to help campaigns.

If you aren’t getting weekly newsletters from TFC, check your Promotion or Junk folders and add us as a safe sender.
We select project team members based on demonstrated skills in your LinkedIn profile. TFC delivers skilled services to campaigns, and we do our best to place experienced volunteers on teams. Unfortunately, if we are not able to validate your experience for the role you are applying to, we cannot place you on that team.
Typically, roles require 5-7 hours per volunteer per week. We have worked hard to organize our project teams based on this commitment to ensure we can deliver high quality results for our campaigns. If you find you are spending more time, please reach your to your Team Lead or TFC Partner.
Yes, for certain roles. Our training is specific to the TFC process and approach versus training on overall digital skills. We choose experienced volunteers for our projects to make the biggest impact for our candidates.
